    OpenGL text rendering

    Hello,
    I am a newbie to this site so any mistakes in posting questions i m sorry... I have started working in opengl. I want to know how to render text in opengl es 2.0? I have searched internet and found it has to be done through third party libraries but i am not interested in doing that way so if you can tell me how i can render text on opengl screen...

    In order to draw text, we will need some way to read a font, and have it converted into a format that we can use with OpenGL. Many operating systems have a standard way to read fonts, but there are also many libraries that can do this. A very good, well-known, cross-platform library is FreeType. It supports a lot of font formats, including TrueType and OpenType.

    hope it helps. i did some text ren. so ask me if u need help
